    Question flowchart. Help!!!

    Anyone know how to write a flowchart for this code? I'm stuck here.

    min_number=var_array[0];

    for(i=0 ; i<6 ; i++)
    {
    if (var_array[i] < min_number) min_number=var_array[i];
    }

    printf("\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n");
    printf(" The minimum value is %d \n", min_number);


    Thanks in advance...

    I assume you have problems making the flowchart for the for-loop. I'll do it in text, you can draw the chart yourself.

    Code:
    initialisation -> check == TRUE -> loop-body -> increase counter -> (now back to the check)
                       -> check == FALSE -> end of loop

    Code:
    min_number=var_array[0];
    
    for(i=0 ; i<6 ; i++) 
       {
       if (var_array[i] < min_number)
          min_number=var_array[i]; 
       };
    
    printf("\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n"); 
    printf(" The minimum value is %d \n", min_number);

    see attached gif.

    WHAT IT DOES
    -------------------
    this code simply finds the smallest number in the list of 6 entries and outputs it at the end. It's missing a couple of things.

    i would think that the for-loop statement should be in a way, right, how about this example ? hopefully this kind of graphic look beautiful anyway.

    Code:
    at the for-loop section,
    
                        |
                        |
                        |
                        |
                     i = 0;
                        |< --------------------------------------------------
                        |                                                                 |
                     i < 6?                                                            |                
                        |                                                                  |
                        |-------- <accordingly to the "yes" way >---|
                   no |
                        |
                        |
                     printf ....
                       | 
                       |
                       |
                       end
    :: HOPE fully this graphic is good.
